An open and welcoming space
At Satya Yoga, our aim is to create an open and welcoming atmosphere for the interested student – regardless of your starting level.
We believe that yoga can help everyone to improve their quality of life – regardless of whether you are: new to exercise, are recovering from an injury, are an athlete looking to understand your body better, or an experienced yogi. Our aim is to work with you, to help you to improve your health and to understand yourself better.
To ensure the optimal learning environment, we keep our classes small. We like to reach out to our students with individualised instruction and postural adjustments: this lets you experience “how the pose feels” when practiced correctly.
Before your first lesson at Satya Yoga
Both beginners and those who have practised other forms of yoga, may wish to follow an ‘Intro Class’. Here you will get accustomed to the Iyengar Yoga system, and learn (or refresh) the essentials: you will learn the basic repertoire and more.
If after taking an ‘Intro Class’ you feel the level is not appropriate (or if you feel your yoga practice allows it), feel free to join a ‘Level 1’ class. Here we build upon the foundation and introduce new categories of poses. ‘Level 1’ classes demand some consistency in practice.
We are here to help you, no matter your level of fitness, previous injuries, health concerns, or confidence levels. We only ask that you help us to help you, by letting us know your issues and concerns before the class – this lets us to adapt the class to your needs.

Some information about Satya yoga
- Satya yoga is us: Lone and Thomas – partners in life and in yoga. Each of us has completed three years of an Iyengar yoga teacher training and another three years of therapeutic yoga training. In addition we each have over 15 years experience teaching yoga.
- Satya is also the name of our school, it means ‘truth’. The search for truth is inherent to yoga practice, it helps us to evolve towards inner clarity.
- We teach using a postural alignement/ art-of-sequencing based system. It is named after the father of the method; BKS Iyengar. Read more here.
- Iyengar yoga is practised barefoot, wear clothes that allow you to move easily. It is best if you come wearing a t-shirt with shorts or leggings; this helps us to see if you are maintining proper alignment in your poses.
- During our lessons we use props (mats, blocks, belts, chairs, etc); we see them as instrinsic to our yoga practice. It is important that you treat them with respect and put them back neatly!
- Satya yoga provides you with mats and all props needed. But you are welcome to bring your own mat.
- You can use our online booking system to sign-up for classes and workshop, as well as purchase subscriptions and giftcards. This is by far the easiest way for you to guarantee your place on a class.
- There is limited space to get changed in – so, while most of our students choose to get changed at the studio, you may choose to get changed at home.
- Your belongings are stored in unlocked boxes. Our front door will be locked during classes, however we do not suggest you bring anything of high value, as we cannot take responsibility for any losses.
